A few kilometres northwest of Bad Muskau, a dense network of lakes, rivers and waterways weaves through the landscape.
Upper Lusatian Heath and Pond Landscape
To the southwest of Bad Muskau is the largest interconnected network of ponds in Germany. The ponds have been used for fishing - particularly carp - since the 13th century, and fish were farmed here for the royal court in Dresden.
Lusatian Lakeland
Swimming and other water sports are possible in the lakes near Żarki Wielkie (Groß Särchen), Senftenberg and Lohsa. Another 15 lakes will be created soon, combining to create the Lusatian Lakeland. Ship ahoy!
Pückler Country
The former mining region is developing into a recreational area - an idea worthy of Prince Pückler himself.

In 1346, the six most important cities in Upper Lusatia formed an alliance, the Sechs-Städte-Verbund. The cities are Bautzen, Görlitz, Kamenz, Luban, Löbau and Zittau, and today their medieval roots still offer a rich historical experience - on both sides of the Neisse River.

Erlichthof Ritschen Museum Village
The 19th century lives on. When villages in the region were destroyed to make way for open cast mining, many of the old log houses - Schrotholzhäuser - were transported to Ritschen.
Nochten Foundling Stone Park
Where once lignite, or brown coal, was dug out of the ground, foundling stones carried here from Scandinavia during the Ice Age now emerge from the earth.
Kromlauer Park
When the rhododendrons are in flower around Whitsun, the park is a sea of reds, yellows, pinks and purples - and many more colours besides.

Sagar Handicraft Museum
The village of Sagar is home to a museum showing traditional artisan's crafts. There is a functioning saw mill, smelting furnace and wheelwright's workshop.
Weisswasser, centre of glass-making
Weisswasser is known as a centre of glass-making, and the town's Glass Museum shows why. You can also stroll through the attractive old town centre and see the Glassmaker's Fountain and the landmark water tower, or visit the zoo.
Muskau Forest Railway
The narrow gauge railway began operating in 1895 between Bad Muskau and Kromlau, via Weisswasser.

Bike Tours
Explore the region at your own pace as marked tracks lead you through woods, romantic hills, and along the banks of the Neisse and Spree rivers.
Walks around Bad Muskau
A number of hiking trails start from Bad Muskau and lead out into the varied surrounding countryside. You can walk along the idyllic Neisse River, through the unique countryside of the Muskauer Faltenbogen, or past the extraordinary landscapes of former open cast mines.
